Tyrese has taken to Facebook for his latest social media plea, this time posting a video and a message asking “women of God” to help his wife out.

“Powerful women of God, cause you guys seem to show UP for each other this is your moment,” he wrote.

He continued, “I’ve always showed up for you. Your events your moments I am simply asking that you show up for my wife….”

“So that I can stay married… my WIFE, who is now pregnant, is the new President of The Love Circle Foundation could really use some help…. You see this? Oprah, Elaine Wynn, Bill and Melinda Gates? Love angel Jada-Pinkett Smith Or maybe Priscilla Zuckerberg? Just asking…” he wrote, linking to the Love Circle Foundation.

“I really wanna stay married… I REPEAT… I DO,” he added.

The post contained several other links to projects like Tyrese’s “Black Rose” album and his book, How to Get Out of Your Own Way as well as a plug for VoltronTravel.com, which Tyrese explained was “teaming up with Tom Joyner and UNCF to HELP put our our babies through college. It’s my lack of education that had me damn near go CRAZY over this custody case…. You listening? My lack’ of education.”

“While you’re walking to and from campus don’t fall in a pot holes from walking and texting,” he wrote.

This is the singer’s most recent social media outreach after breaking down on the internet over his contentious custody battle against his ex-wife. Tyrese has repeatedly pleaded to not have his daughter, Shayla, taken away from him and has claimed that he is now broke from child support payments and legal fees.

It appears this new tactic is his latest attempt at making bank.

His post is also accompanied by a video in which his carpenter details his own similar custody fight. The man’s face and voice is distorted to maintain his anonymity.

In another part of the video, Tyrese breaks down in tears before heading out for a day of court. The singer said he decided to wear Chuck Taylor sneakers as a “silent protest” in honor of “all of the men in all of the ghettos around the world who didn’t have the money to have better representation for their case and accusations.”

He added, “This is for all of the fathers who are in jail just sitting in a f*cking cage, just rotting.”
